Guestbook comments from the manager

Group of 5 University students based in Lisbon wrote in the Sunny House Guestbook:



"Paul do Mar is really beautiful. It was always sunny! Bananas were awesome. You can explore nature and see the nicest sunsets.



Sunny House is amazing. It was nice and clean. It is big and comfortable. We liked terrace the most! Amazing just to sit there and watch the sea, waves and sun.



We recommend Sunny House to everyone who is traveling to Madeira to spend a nice holiday there."

We are a “hiking-style” couple who love nature and know the island pretty well as travelling here every year (sometimes twice a year) and also pretty much familiar with rentals in Madeira–also at Paul do Mar form earlier. We are also mostly self-catering that is why a well-equipped house/apartment (kitchen) is essential for us. Here we ve found absolutely EVERYTHING we needed. Sunny Beach House is located at the lower (western) part of this village. It is built as a twin-fashion-house where we ve got the eastern section. A row of houses at the beach then comes banana plantations in front of the house and on both sides. Parking is at the beach ca 100 m down from the entrance door.There are 3 levels inside (kitchen+one bedroom and bathroom at the base-bedrooms and bathroom+ terrace at the middle and smaller living room+terrace at the top. ) As I ve mentioned we’d been living in several rental apartments/houses in Madeira but this one was really unique as very well equipped-meaning that we ve found all the things that we are using at home and as such the stay for us here was like “being at home” (for us)!

Quiet surroundings, birds around, the sound of the wind and waves–something a “must have” for us and ve got it here. Above all of this we had the opportunity to meet the very friendly owner Paul who has supplied us with a lot of useful information firstly regarding the house , then possible sites places-museums to visit and also information regarding facilities, wines ,gastronomy, shopping ,whale watching options in Madeira itself….etc

Provided us brochures-books-maps so very well equipped could start our stay in Madeira again! (even walking sticks for the 2 of us-as we ve forgotten to take ours with us this time!!

Thanks Paul!

We ve never before met such a careful host as You are! You ve made our stay here even more pleasant as it uses to be …! We d definitely come back again –probably this year ! Best wishes for You and Iva and we d also wish You lots of satisfied and happy guests at this place ….as we are!!

A quite little gem!

  • 5 of 5

Right from our arrival Paul & Iva impressed us with their friendliness and local knowledge. You felt like you were returning friends rather than first time visitors. The house was well equipped, with the possible exception of there not being an oven, not a major problem to us but would have been nice. You even have basics like ground coffee, tea, milk etc to make you feel welcome. You are informed of where the best eating places and shops are. And when we needed some help for directions etc a simple text and within minutes you have what you need. The best thing was the peace in order to rest, and the views!

Great place to stay and relax

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with everything inside and outside we needed. Shady balcony with great view to the sea and the cliffs. The beach is just a two minutes walk away as well as a very relaxed lounge.

The owner was always there when we neede him and told us everything about the place and the surroundings we wanted to know.

I will definitely book this house again on my next holiday at Madeira.

Relax, calm, wonderful view on ocean

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for the very warm welcome from Iva having all necessary explanations regarding house and facilities. It’s a very comfort house with all things you are waiting for. We spent time on the sunny balcony, some time too hot (barbecue need a little repair soon) with the amazing sunset. Very quiet, little sombreness living room, easy accessible house, near very good restaurants, able to buy basics things, nice and excellent coffee and cakes in Villa Amore.

We enjoy the nice beach in Caletha and the traditional little stone one by Ponta do Sol, as well the excursion to dolphin/whale watching (Lobosonda) and the unforgettable Levadas.

For sure, to be recommended.

Kind regards

Eric & Zerrin

Close to nature: still a centre for fishing and agriculture with a new fishing harbour and many banana fields 'Paul' is now more famous for ‘the feel-good factor’ – peace and relaxation in the country on the hottest Madeiran coastline with the most sunshine. This means that all can relax, swim and walk in these sunnier and hotter climes all year round! Popular amongst walkers, fishermen and swimmers with several safe swimming areas and closeness to famous mountain and levada walks PR 6 and the 'Rabacal/25 fountains' PR 19 walk. Attractions include white sand beaches next to Calheta Marina 10 minutes drive, a rum factory Engenhos with a museum, Prazeres village with 17th century church, fruit and vegetable market and ‘Quinta Pedagogica’ - a free animal park, art gallery and cider house! Plus, there is the award-winning international art centre: ‘Casa das Mudas’ & UNESCO-protected Ancient Laurisilva Forest. Whale/dolphin-watching and big-game fishing boats operate from Calheta marina.

Other Activities: Levada and forest walks
